5:00 pm
all right. that's going to do it for this hour. the next hour begins now with pamela brown in new york. hi, pamela. >> hi there. i'll take it from here. thank you so much. i am pamela brown filling in for don lemon on this sunday. we start in idaho where a massive wildfire is forcing thousands of families to pack up and leave their homes. we have photos right here. take a look. of the huge wildfire there. this is from ireporter john koth in haley, idaho. there's huge clouds of smoke yet again today. 1,000 firefighters are battling the blaze and as we mentioned more than 1,000 firefighters there, they have a lot to contend with. evacuation orders cover 2,200 homes and 6 communities. snow-making guns were activated to fight the wildfire. idaho governor otter toured
5:01 pm
affected areas today and talked with fire crews. >> they look the worst for wear but seeing smile on their face and then their attitude about how they're being treated and how they're being supported by our local folks, by the county folks, the city folks, the state department of lands, it really tells me that we're working this thing out, we're working it the right way. >> yet, with all of the efforts the wildfire is only 9% contained. i want to bring in the public information officer for blain county, idaho, on the phone with us. i want to get straight to how close it is to folks' homes. there's evacuation orders in place. >> yes. we do have about 2,300 residents that have been affected by the mandatory evacuation area and the fire is very close to people's homes. it is down in neighbors, it's along streets and neighborhoods and it's in people's front yards so it's very close to homes.
5:02 pm
>> and where are evacuees gathering for shelter and help? what are the availabilities of resources for some of these having to evacuate? >> we have a red cross shelter set up in haley, one of the affected communities, but it's in the southern part of the town where the red cross shelter is. people are staying there. we have very generous communities south of us that opened up their fairgrounds and camping areas and people are headed south to go camping so we're trying to find space for people and we're lucky that we have generous communities nearby that opened up space for that. >> making matters worse, the strong winds, a thousand firefighters battling that blaze, but they have to contend with. tell me about that. >> so we have a red flag warning in effect for us this afternoon. we have very strong winds along the ridges about 25 miles per hour in the south-southwest direction which is pretty much
5:03 pm
the opposite of what you'd want in this type of situation, that wind is pushing the fire closer and closer to homes. we expect those hot, dry, windy conditions to continue for the next day or so. so we're just gearing up for that. >> and can you just give us an update quickly on whether there's been any injuries, how many homes were burnled, that kind of thing? >> thankfully, we haven't had any injuries. we have been very lucky that way and hope it stays that. we have lost two structures, one outbuilding and one residence. we have strike teams working incredibly hard to protect people's homes and that's their sole -- so they're out there, the sole job to do that and they're working around the clock to make sure people have safe property. >> and how about how many acres this fire covered? as we mentioned, it is 9% contained at this hour. >> it's grown to over 100,000 acres. as of today. and the information that we're hearing from the operations
5:04 pm
commander at the fire camp is that his expectation is that will grow. we don't know how much but it is over 100,000 acres at this point. >> unbelievable. ho hopefully the winds calm down soon. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. from fire to water, the southeast is feeling more like the pacific northwest. states like north carolina, florida and georgia have been getting drenched and there's more rain to come. take a look at this video. this is out of wilmington, north carolina, and our meteorologist jennifer delgado breaks down how much water they're getting. >> talking about very soggy weekend for parts of the southeast and look at the numbers we are talking about. some of these locations, more than ten or 11 inches of ra rainfall. it's numbers through june. atlanta, ten inches more. fot. lauderdale, this is not helping for people coming down
5:05 pm
there for vacations. and unfortunately, more rain is on the way. as we look at the graphic here, we can point out to you, some locations three to six inches of rainfall for the florida panhandle, south carolina and georgia. two to four inches and we still do have many flood watches in place and warnings through today and we could still some of these for tomorrow, as well, because the ground is just so saturated. nowhere for this rain to go. looking at monday's forecast, guess what? more rain for the southeast. sunshine, beautiful conditions for parts of the midwest. it's going to start to get hot for texas and adding that heat in for the midwest and the northeast, mid-atlantic and as well as new england. more rain for parts of the southeast as we talk more about the temperatures. let's end on some good news, return to summer like conditions. if you notice for chicago, above average by wednesday. we are expecting a high of 90 degrees. we should be at 82.
5:06 pm
we didn't forget about you in new york city. how about this? 86 on tuesday. 88 on wednesday. and then on thursday, 86 degrees, as well. pamela, i think we can go outside and enjoy that up there. >> i would say so. jennifer delgado, thank you so much. an attorney for jerry sandusky's abuse victims said that the client settled the civil suit against the universe. sandusky was convicted last year. tom clienteles cnn that the client never would have been abused if school officials has not mishandled earlier claims of abuse including the one reported by the former assistant coach. >> my client, victim number 5, was assaulted in the shower at penn state six months later so the incident with my client could have and should have been directly stopped and could have been stopped had the appropriate reporting taken place. so my client actually may end up a witness in that trial if subpoenaed just as he testified
5:07 pm
live and in person, of course, in the sandusky trial and again at the sentencing hearing. >> the school's former president, vice president and athletic director all face trial on an obstruction of justice and other charges. in san diego, organizers there are gathering signatures to force a recall of mayor bob filner. volunteers circulated petitions. a march and rally are also set to begin this hour. filner, of course, facing multiple accusations of sexual harassment and last count 16 women have gone public with accusations against him. and federal investigators had determined that the autopilot was engaged until the final seconds before wednesday's crash. ntsb board member said that based on flight recordings analyzed all flight and engine data appear to be normal before crashing. the pie lot and the co-pilot died in that crash. scotland yard is taking

it is late at night in cairo right now but we're tracking news of a deadly street battle there in cairo. militants apparently attacked police vehicles transporting prisoners. more than 35 people are reported dead in the fighting that
5:11 pm
killed. a city wide curfew is in effect right now. stay right here. we are live from egypt with the new fighting coming up in about half an hour from now. meantime, new claims about the death of princess diana nearly 16 years ago. relatives of a british special forces sniper reportedly claim a member of the british military killed her and now scotland yard is assessing the credibility of the claim. atika shubert has more. >> reporter: a brutal car crash in a dark tunnel. princess die yeah in's death in 1997 was a violent tragedy. conspiracy theories abounded including an allegation that she and her companion were murdered by a member of the british military. but multiple investigations by both french and british police dismissed that. a judge led inquiry in the uk concluded the death was an unlawful killing caused by the gross negligence of the driver of her car and the vehicles
5:12 pm
chasing her. now brscotland yard said they'r assessing the credibility. according to the british press association, the information allegedly comes from the parents-in-law of a former british soldier coming weeks after the birth of prince george, princess die yeah in's grandson, third in line to the br british throne, the son of prince william and kate middleton. for many in britain, the image of the young family brought back warm families of princess diana with prince william in her arms. august 31st will be exactly 16 years since the death of princess diana. now, this new information, whatever it may be will almost certainly reignite controversy around her and speculation about how she died. cnn, london. >> thank you, atika. her tireless work with charities woven throughout the legacy of princess diana and her son harry
5:13 pm
is helping move that work forward. earlier he was in angola, that was an effort dear to his mother's heart. diana's grandson prince george will be one month old this week. his father is back at work as a search and rescue helicopter pilot in north wales after paternity leave and the prince sat down with cnn's max foster to talk about life since the arrival of prince george and being a dad. you can see parts of that interview beginning at 6:00 a.m. eastern time. so you don't want to miss that. and coming up, we have a fascinating story for you. experts say a real life jaws may be stalking the swimmers at a california beach and believed to have killed two people and there's a race to find him before he strikes again. we'll take you inside the hunt for a serial killer shark light after the break. to come togethere peope on something that concerns all of us. obesity.

5:16 pm
5:17 pm
there is a murder mystery in the small town of long poke, california. two men visiting surf beach were attacked and killed, the same way exactly two years apart. the killer, a 16-foot great white shark. bizarre coincidence or the work of a serial killer shark? that's the question in this week's "science behind." discovery shark week expert jeff kerr joins us now. nice to have you with us, jeff. first off, i just want to establish. >> great to be here. >> you believe they were killed by the same great white shark. is that right? >> we don't have any hard evidence it was the same shark. just a lot of freaky coincidences. on the same day two years ago, the shark was roughly the same size, talking about an animal
5:18 pm
over 16 feet in length which is extremely rare for a great white shark and has to be a short list of suspects. a lot of things pointing towards the single shark. if i was a prosecuting attorney, i couldn't convict a single shark because auliffe is circumstantial evidence to this point. >> so, we have always heard that sharks don't like the taste of human blood, unlike "jaws." but it seems like according to your theory that this shark is different. what makes it different? what do you think it likes the taste of human flesh and blood? >> i don't think it likes human blood or targeting humans at all. i think these two attacks were actually accidents. the shark just happening to be coming the beach and that's the weird thing in this film to figure out why a great white shark might come to this beach because there's only been five fatal shark attacks off california since 2000. the last two occurred at surf beach and in the film we
5:19 pm
discover it might be a toxic chemical in the water affecting marine life and attracting sharks to the beach. >> this is really startling information. what else did you find in the course of making this film? >> well, there was actually an attack if 2008 which goes with the two-year theory. 2008, 2010, 2012. and that core lates with white shark migration patterns up and down the coast. every year the large pregnant great whites migrate to the pacific and might be passing by surf beach on the same day every two years. they oar much like homing pigeons. they have like a built in gps to find places like this and they're creatures of habit. they return and return again and again and not a malicious thing. they're not targeting humans. they're there probably to find seals that might have been affected by the toxic chemical.
5:20 pm
>> okay. so you think that it was more accidentally targeted the humans thinking it was something else, essentially, right? >> yeah. just bad luck. humans and white sharks are together in the water a lot and people don't realize the sharks are there. i have flown in helicopters up and down the coast of southern california and looked down and seen white sharks in among the people. they rarely attack. the weird thing is that it's happened at surf beach, you know, in 2010 and 2012. and, you know, if the shark is true to its nature, i'm thinking it may come back again in 2014. so that's -- we want the warning out. people should be cautious in october of 2014 if the shark does return. >> so i'm assuming you will not be at surf's beach october of 2014? >> i will be there, definitely. >> okay. i won't be there. >> i want to figure it out. nobody else should be there. i'll probably be out there in a kayak with go-pro cameras for shots of when animal, maybe dna to solve the case.
5:21 pm
>> you are a brave man, jeff kerr. i have to say. i have a strong fear of sharks and when i read about this story, i just -- i couldn't believe it. it is face nascinating stuff. thank you for coming on the show and sharing what you know about this. thank you. >> thanks, pamela. well, what was supposed to be a celebration quickly took a turn for the worst. a guy falls out of a window and we have the details just ahead. it's a stationery and gifts store. anything we purchase for the paper cottage goes on our ink card. so you can manage your business expenses and access them online instantly with the game changing app from ink. we didn't get into business to spend time managing receipts, that's why we have ink. we like being in business because we like being creative, we like interacting with people. so you have time to focus on the things you love. ink from chase. so you can.

a quick look at some of our top stories on this sunday. there's a new conspiracy theory in the death of princess diana nearly 16 years ago. parents involve a british sniper report saying the british military killed her and the couple released the claim after the marriage to the sniper fell apart. scot lard yard is assessing the credibility of the new information but says this is not a reinvestigation of diana's death. a fast-moving wildfire in idaho forcing thousands of families to pack up and leave their homes. we have new photos of the huge blaze. take a look here. this is from ireporter john koth in haley, idaho. there's huge clouds of smoke there in idaho. more than 1,000 firefighters are battling the blaze and they have a lot to contend with. the beaver creek wildfire has burned more than 1,000 acres and is only 9% contained and officials believe it will continue to spread. sad story here. a bachelor party at a colorado
5:25 pm
hotel results in the death of a friend of the groom. our denver affiliate kusa reports the man was on the ledge when a screen gave way and plum meted five stories. police say alcohol was found in the room but they believe the death was an accident. a georgia woman accused of misleading the investigation of her husband's murder could learn her fate tomorrow. andrea snooederman was arraigned but the charges were reduced to perjury and hindering the investigation. her husband was killed back in 2010. the ex-boss was found guilty and mentally ill. andrea pleaded not guilty to 13 counts. 16-year-old kidnap victim hannah anderson is preparing for a public memorial service to honor her mother and brother next weekend. they were tortured and killed
5:26 pm
before hannah was kidnapped. their bodies were found in the burning home. hannah was rescued. earlier this week, hannah wrote, my two angels next to a photo of her mother and brother on instagram. the joint memorial service is set for saturday in california. well, tonight, cnn brings you dramatic details of the kidnapping and the effort that led to her rescue in the idaho wilderness. anderson cooper "special report" airs tonight at 6:30 p.m. eastern time. and let's go to cairo now. that's where the initial protests that were calmer and reports of violence fewer today and didn't last long in egypt. we are getting new details of a street assault and fight between militants and security officials that left many people dead. cnn's nick payton walsh is in cairo for us. we know you can't move around easily with the curfew but what
5:27 pm
do you know about this incident in cairo? what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, during the day, large number of muslim brotherhood individuals taken prison here in central cairo were being moved from the center of the city to a prison on the outskirts to the north. it appears during this, some state media reports conflicting here, but some suggest militants attacked part of the convoy or a police officer traveling with the prisoners taken hostage. at the end of the day, there are now 36, at least of those prisoners dead. suffocated to death by teargas fired in to the vehicle they were traveling in. but this comes after a day of comparative calm here in central cairo. the muslim brotherhood planned two large protest marches to move towards two government buildings and the military always threatened to use live ammunition to repel anyone that threatens state institutions. dusting and the curfew set in,
5:28 pm
the marches were scaled back significantly. one or two small scatter protests and the head of the army saying that there were quote room for everyone in egypt. frankly, many putting it out of context of hard line rhetoric against the muslim brotherhood. real concern that the violence could rear its ugly head again, pamela. >> right. in light of that, nick, hearing that the government authorities are considering banning the muslim brotherhood there in egypt. what are you hearing about that? >> reporter: well, that does fit with the pattern that we've been hearing and framing the fight against them and the global war on terror, i remember from the last decade, putting the brotherhood as an illegal organization, they have been that for decades before. they found power after the fall of hosni mubarak and many argue
5:29 pm
force them underground, does that risk them getting more violent? we have to see. it's still a government signal. they haven't passed a law but fits in with the intense crackdown we have been seeing, pamela. >> thank you so much for reporting there in cairo and stay safe. events in egypt are closely watched a you will over the world but especially by egyptian people living outside their homeland. alino cho is in queens, new york, called little egypt. >> reporter: pamela, i think it's safe to say that emotions are running high here in little egypt. people are angry, fearful. one man was reduced to tears. when you walk around the streets here, when you visit cafes, all of the tvs are set to the news coverage. people are obviously watching the developments very closely. most of the people we spoke to said that they support the military. that ousted president morsi. they say that even though he was a democratically elected president, he made promises to take care of the egyptian people and didn't deliver. they also say that morsi's muslim brotherhood is a
5:30 pm
terrorist group. but mostly, around here, the tone seems to be one of concern for the homeland. what's going on there, what's -- >> what's going on? killing people in the streets, innocent people. 84 children in one day. why? >> i'm a muslim but i'm against the muslim brotherhood and what they're doing. you know? we thought when he come to the power he would work for the egyptian people but -- but he was working for his organization. or his muslim -- it's not fair. >> reporter: why is this bringing you -- >> egypt is my country. that's it. >> reporter: stunning to see a grown man cry when talking about the situation in egypt but i have to tell you, pamela, when you look at the bloodshed day after day, no signs ofleting up, relatives living close by, i suppose it's hard not to get emotional.
5:31 pm
pamela? >> absolutely. that was really powerful interview. thank you. it is said that coffee can ease depression or raise your blood pressure or lower the rates of diabetes. is it bad or good? so many conflicting reports and we sort it out after this break.
5:32 pm
5:33 pm
5:34 pm
well, just days after learning that childhood obesity rates are dropping in the u.s., sobering news of overweight adults. according to a study, obesity kills nearly 1 in 5 u.s. adult that is die between 40 and 85. that's nearly three times greater than previously thought. and even more sobering, researchers expect adult obesity deaths to rise and perhaps lead to declines in overall u.s. life expectancy. all right.
5:35 pm
well, here's a fun fact about me. i like to drink coffee, a lot of it. i have a feeling a lot of you like to drink coffee, as well, so the next story coming up definitely caught my attention and i'm sure it will catch yours. there's a study finding that if you're 55 and under and drink more than 4 cups per day you may be at greater risk of dying early. and not just from heart problems but from all problems. so i brought out our dr. debbie on the show to break it down for us. so, you know, we see all of these studies that seems like every other week, we hear it's good, it's bad. this latest study basically saying, you should n't drink more than four cups. can you tell us what led to this conclusion? >> shoure, pamela. i love my morning cup and this study was a little bit concerning. it came out the past week and basically showed under 55 and a heavy coffee drinker, you might be more at risk to die of any
5:36 pm
cause, not just heart related problems or something related to digestion. one thing to keep in mind, in an ideal study you look at people noncoffee drinkers and you give them large amounts of coffee to see what happens. this study actually looked at people over the course of 30 years and they didn't actually do that. what they did is look at people already coffee drinkers, heavy coffee drinkers and people who are not and just let them continue with their usual habits so there might be thing that is are different about people who drink coffee regularly, compared to people that don't drink coffee and might be factors, as well. >> what about the age? you said it applies to people under the age of 55. do you know why that is? >> well, we don't know for sure but there are other studies looking at people older, between 50 and 70. this is another powerful nih study and they found that coffee protective so we don't know -- i
5:37 pm
mean, there might be different reasons why people of different ages drink coffee. people who are younger may be drinking coffee for reasons related to work or stress. i know, for example, that time i drank the most coffee was in residency and that was because i was exhausted all the time. but i felt like i was under a lot of pressure to actually get things done and drank a lot of coffee at that time and might be more related to sleep or sleep deprivation and also related to perhaps even the type of coffee that people drink so we don't know if people in different age groups dink more espresso versus filtered or other types of coffee. >> not only that, i know a lot of people drink venti cups of coffee and doesn't help and this study talks about the smaller cups, you know, 8 ounces. what are we supposed to believe here? a recent study said it could lower a risk of early death. what do you think we should believe and how much coffee do
5:38 pm
you think we should drink? >> i think it's hard to say for sure. at least in terms of individual people, i think we need to look at people's symptoms. if you're a coffee drinker and having palpitations or problems with reflux or heart burn, probably need to cut down anyway. we have people with headaches or chronic pain related to caffeine use with large amounts of coffee and i would say it's a good idea to kind of cut down but i definitely think we need to look at why people drink coffee. drinking large amounts of coffee because they don't get sleep, that's more important to look at than the number of cups they're drinking. look at sleep deprivation, even just last week somebody in new zealand, a lady drove 200 miles, texting and driving and sleeping under sleeping medications and these are all factors to be
5:39 pm
considered. >> i read -- that's a crazy story. more and more people relying on sleeping pills according to the numbers out there and as a result probably drinking more coffee, as well. lots of factors to look at. thank you so much for breaking it down for us. we appreciate it. >> thanks so much. for those of you sports fans out there still arguing over whether the designated hitter rule is bad for baseball, here's a new controversy. are you ready for instant replay in baseball? that's next. dad. how did you get here? i don't know. [ speaking in russian ] look, look, look... you probably want to get away as much as we do. with priceline express deals, you can get a fabulous hotel without bidding. think of the rubles you'll save. with one touch, fun in the sun. i like fun. well, that went exactly i as planned.. really?

♪ rock n roll all night, party all day and score touchdowns, too. a little bit of everything. the legendary rockers kiss are the owners of the arena football league's new los angeles franchise. the team will be aptly named the l.a. kiss. they'll join the league in 2014 and every fan that buys a season ticket will be invited to a free kiss concert. really good deal there. let's continue to talk about sports here because this is a controversial story. i mean, a lot of sports fans, baseball fans in particular, pro-football has instant replay and now baseball managers may get a chance to challenge calls on the field. terrance moore is a sports contributor to and a columnist. let's talk about this. i know everyone hates to see an umpire make a bad call but fans complain that baseball games are just too long. if this actually goes in to
5:43 pm
effect with the instant replays, what do you think? does it make the games longer? >> well, first of all, pam, this is a brutal idea. okay? and let's start with this. the world series has been played for more than 100 years. nobody can come up with more than two or three calls maybe that perhaps could have cost a team a world championship. by major league baseball's own statistics, one out of every five games with a blown call. so, you know, that's not an issue here and what's going on, the bottom line, this is the knee jerk society of america rearing its ugly head again and to get to your point, when the games start lasting the time to fly from here in atlanta to mars, the people will be screaming about instant replay. >> all right. we'll have to see about that but the league claims it can review a umpire's call in less than two minutes. do you think that's realistic?
5:44 pm
>> let's say, for instance, that's the truth. all right. say if that's the true, what they're not telling us, the supporters of instant replay are all the other horror stories. for instance, each manager gets three challenges. but if a manager wins the challenge, he gets another challenge. and then another challenge. so that's more time right there. the pitcher, all right, during these challenges, the pitcher is not warming up or barely warming up. he wants to warm up after the decision is made. that's more time and then the other thing is, even though they're saying that you're not allowed to argue after these challenges are decided, we all know that arguing is in the dna of your average baseball person. these games will never end. >> look at football. all right. let's shift focus and talk about the alex rodriguez saga. seems like it will not go away. he's appealing his suspension and "60 minutes" is reporting
5:45 pm
that he implicated two other players. what is your reaction to this latest report? >> well, i'll tell you what, pam. seems like every day if not every hour there's another horror story with alex rodriguez and this is one of the worst ones because if it's proven true squealing on the fellow baseball players, he will never again be able to be in a major league clubhouse and within 24 hours, you have got this nasty dispute again between alex rodriguez and the yankees over his medical records. it just goes on and on. it's just outrageous. >> yeah. you wonder if the suspension does go through after the appeal and out for this season, the next season, will he go back and join another team and get back in the league. you look at the age, as well, as a factor. >> that's too much stuff out there. as you say, if the suspension does go through here, he will never again play major league baseball. >> wow. that's a strong statement there.
5:46 pm
